In the mid-1930's my uncle, Bob Ewing, installed the first frozen custard machine in Memphis across from the Fairgrounds. It was a stand-alone building shaped like an ice-igloo and was called The FROZEN CUSTARD. There were two snowball-tossing bears on either side of the window where one ordered cones of custard. Many years later (1950's) the building was incorporated into the Fairview drive-in restaurant and the original bears were removed and replaced eventually by the ones there now. My uncle worked for the man who innovated the idea of soft ice cream and installed machines all over the eastern part of the U.S. He lived just one block from the Frozen Custard stand at 927 East parkway, That house was just razed in November of 2014. Lots of great memories over the years in that vicinity. Charlie lambert

Retired and loving it

Dr. George Flinn,

I met you at a Ham Radio breakfast meeting in Bartlett.  

You do have many interests, and in researching, 

I found you are well qualified. 

 

I understand that you are Running for Senator 

and I will probably vote for you.

 

However, TODAY, 

I am voting for you as 

The Man of the Year in Memphis Media,

because of your great contributions 

to the Memphis Media Radio Scene.

I was lucky to be at work at Pig-A Dilly a couple of times in the early 70's when the Juke Box man came to change out the records!  He would let you buy the ones he took off for 25 cents and give you the record sleeve and the Juke Box label!  I worked there after school 3 days a week.

This is a picture of the Jukebox! in the late 1960's
